Enjoy some wonderful Welsh roads and views
Anglesey is generally somewhere that people ride through as fast and in as straight a line as possible, in order to catch a ferry to Ireland from Holyhead. And that’s a shame, as the island has some great riding to offer. After crossing the Menai Bridge, turn off the A55 and take the A5025, a road that hugs the coast all around the isle.
Small and twisty, this isn’t one to ride fast – instead it is one to cruise along, enjoy the glorious views and even indulge in a bit of grey seal spotting. These beauties are quite common in the waters around Anglesey and can often be seen sunbathing on the rocks. After crossing the A55 at Holyhead, avoid the major road again and instead take the A4080 that mirrors the A5025 but instead shadows the south coast.
Anglesey circuit is tucked away just off this road and no trip to this area is complete without a quick stop at the track to see what is happening. Failing that, you could always pop to the model village, farm park or sea zoo. There are a large number of campsites on Anglesey so you could easily have one day exploring the island and the other thrashing you bike around the track. Sounds like a perfect weekend away, doesn’t it?
